Wish this one had better music. The graphics are awesome but the music feels like a boring loop.
rulez added on the 2018-04-01 02:06:34 by gaspode gaspode
What? I loved the music. I thought it was rather great for this size of production. However I think they spent a lot of time showing us the same cubes just slightly different ways. So if the music was boring due to looping it was perhaps because there weren't enough different visuals to inspire new places for the music to go. :)

Beautiful in it's simplicity - both graphically and musically, although all the changing camera shots do get a bit too hectic near the end.
rulez added on the 2018-04-01 05:23:27 by cpdt cpdt
Exactly what it needs to be. Anyone complaining about the music must not understand, well, music. While you have displayed childish comnents on demos from before your time (understandable because of generations and whatnot), it's clear you fucking rule. Thanks for saving the compo and pushing out an outstanding product.

Visuals are intricate and beautiful to look at, but the music is not all that interesting to me. Something about that plane really hits me in a visually pleasing nerve, and while the intro is structurally a bit repetitive it ends just on the right note.

Amazing visuals and what a marvelous soundtrack! Great work with tricking the reverb to act as a delay :) Generally, the instrument work is really amazing. The strings are particularly delicious! Generally a sweet composition, too. Massive work from both of you guys.

Will rewatch this many times and recommend to my friends. The style is perfect and the whole thing lends itself equally well both to a focused viewing and being a party background. The production is polished and the direction is confident enough to completely rid this demo of the feeling of compromise typical for a 4k. Just earlier this decade one could've passed it off as a full-size demo and win a compo with flying colors!

You could be forgiven for thinking this was done in MAX or Maya. Rendering quality is really good and the progression is smooth af. The tune doesn't sound anything like 4k to me.

audio is awesome and obliterates pretty much every single 4k (and many 64k) soundtracks. the visuals perfectly compliment it. I usually don't like repetitive visuals but it still worked pretty well.

This was def. my party favourite! Really loved to whole picture and how it transcends the medium into something enjoyable for anyone while also being a super impressive 4k!

@Gargaj it resizes (but doesn't clear) the display & then takes several minutes of precalc for me, like.. 3 or 4.
rulez added on the 2018-04-06 22:52:58 by TropicalTrevor TropicalTrevor
Gargaj, TropicalTrevor: I measured before the party that it takes about 90 seconds to render the music (Oidos) on an i7-7700K. On my aging Intel E8500 it's about 3 minutes. I'd say those are about the range to except most current CPUs to fall between. Efforts were made to try to make Oidos run in its own thread but even letting the synth catch ahead a little bit (like up to 30 seconds, or even more) and then calling Oidos to start playing the buffer wouldn't work; the result was always just silence if you wouldn't let the entire precalc finish. Would be interested in knowing myself why this is tbh.

Thanks everyone for the comments of course <3. This was really just a test of a new path tracer implementation. Hope you get to see something more grand at some upcoming parties!

added on the 2018-04-09 11:29:48 by okkie okkie
Okay so I watched it now again and all the things that I faintly remembered to be off during the compo came back crashing; the dodgy colors, the noisiness, the gimbal lock camera spin (noby, of all people, jeez!), and that it really runs out of ideas once the lines appear - the bit where the cubes stretch out feels like a desperate attempt to pad out time and it's not a particularly good looking one.

It's still a fantastic 4k, but kings are measured with the scale of kings, sorry :)
rulez added on the 2018-04-09 14:28:08 by Gargaj Gargaj
Makes my GTX 970 scream for mercy (maybe a 360/480p version could happen? :) but the overall design, polish, and music quality in 4k make it memorable.

Would be interested in knowing myself why this is tbh.

Oidos renders the music one track at a time. First it renders and mixes all tracks with reverb into one buffer, then it computes the reverb into a different buffer (so it can compute one echo at a time without them interfering with each other), then it renders and mixes the remaining tracks into the first buffer, and finally it combines the two buffers and converts the result into 16-bit integers for the actual replay buffer.

The motivation for structuring it this way is a combination of minimal code size and rendering each instrument/tone combination only once (to keep the precalc time from being even more horrendous).

My next synth will be rendering in one pass continuously from start to finish, I promise. :)

Yeah that makes sense, and it's pretty much what I suspected was the reason behind it. Thanks for the info :)

for me, this one, is the best in the compo
it has the full length, no 2 minutes or less of showing one effect.. yes it is one scene, but.. it is played well, ortho views, and sync with music.. of course some people would like to see something like Second Reality, but guys.. it is minimalistic, it is the style.. just remove all this details and you will see just four/eight cubes in path tracing. The music is very well done, some minor bugs which are hard to notice during the compo, i.e. hihats are too loud for me, but I noticed that only at home.

just watch it again and you will see:
1. the first scene is not cubes, it looks like 2d graphics
2. 0:31 then black and white scene where we can see how floor is mirroring.
3. 1:04 the strings instrument comes and we have colors
4. 1:22 you will notice the floor is different now
5. 1:35 we have new instrument and the camera movement is different plus we have some glitches in our ortho 3d ;)
6. 2:06 ussual 4k ends here... but we have cymbals and our ortho is not ortho anymore.. the glitches(b/w lines) parts look like 2d objects
7. 3:11 back to initial scene, bluring fading outing............

Thank you noby for such great intro! I am really want to see what you can do in 64k ;)

Great looks and the music is a perfect match for the visuals, especially considering the 4k limits. It is highly enjoyable to see for example well done chromatic aberrations and small details like the motion blur or specular and reflect variations done with style, and all this combined to quality hard cut camera work.

Keep on rocking!

Any chance of a non-realtime 4k60p capture of this?
added on the 2018-04-17 17:35:02 by xernobyl xernobyl
In theory yes. If someone has a 4K display they can create one with kkapture. Unfortunately I don't though. This intro uses the default windows OpenGL framebuffer for all render passes, which I don't think can exceed the display dimensions. Could be rewritten to be more robust of course (sacrificing the size limit) but I don't really feel like doing that right now.

If anyone wants to do that I can provide an exe. I should make a post-party release anyway since the exe show in the compo was accidentally too bright (the current youtube video is correct though).

@Magic: Not really. I provided some raytracing code and helped out fixing some stuff but noby did the vast majority of the work on this both visually and musically. By contast, noby did all of the music for Oscar's Chair, which provides a large portion of that demo's feeling.
